THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH
Behold the Lion, that of the tribe of Judah,
The One in whom king David’s line is rooted,
Who overcame through warring resolutely
And has secured God’s glory in its fulness:
Towards His God His victory is fruitful;
Towards His own His victory is goodness;
Towards the devil His victory is ruthless.
Since none withstand the Lion’s stately footsteps
Throughout the universe let praise be bruited
To Him who made this glorious revolution:
Toward His Name let praises be effusive
Since He has brought God’s counsels to conclusion.
